As the sun sets on another day in the Gulf Coast city of Biloxi, Mississippi, local sea birds return to perch for the night on a dock that was ravaged years before by Hurricane Katrina, yet still remains in disrepair. Although this image portrays a tranquil scene, the surrounding area is for gambling and entertainment.
